The refurbishment of a Seagull Swift 40


Well-known member
Well done for surviving the maiden! Here’s to it having a long career on the new motor.
I had a to make a quick decision, if I had carried on forward it would have certainly hit the river.
Before the motor went bad it was flying like a champ. I had already flown through the BMFA A certificate manoeuvres successfully.

Wake up! Time to fly!
Well done and congratz on the certification. Guess that all paid off that last flight.

Just goes to show if you dont panic things work out a goid portion of the time.

You did an awesome job on the refurb. Looked like it flys itself.
